    If you're a fan of westerns, John Ford and John Wayne movies in particular, you'll know who this was.

    LOS ANGELES (AP) — Harry Carey Jr., a character actor who starred in such Westerns as "3 Godfathers" and "Wagon Master," has died. He was 91.
    His daughter, Melinda Carey, said he died Thursday of natural causes surrounded by family at a hospice facility in Santa Barbara, Calif.
    "He went out as gracefully as he came in," she said Friday.
    Carey's career spanned more than 50 years and included such John Ford classics as "She Wore a Yellow Ribbon," ''The Searchers" and "The Long Gray Line." Later in life, he appeared in the movies "Gremlins" and "Back to the Future Part III."
    His memoir, "Company of Heroes: My Life as an Actor in the John Ford Stock Company," was published in 1994.

    He was a solid performer and appeared in dozens of classic westerns. Gotta track down his autobiography. I bet its a great read.

    RIP funnyman.

    "3 Godfathers" was a much better movie than "The Godfather." I'm not sure how to quantify how much better it was, but much better.

    Shouldn't someone at least be connected with the HSS in some way for it to be considered part of "The Curse"?
